Military Sex Crime Attorney
Congress has taken a keen interest in the prosecution of military sex crimes over the past few years, which has drastically changed the landscape of how these matters are handled. While the allegations of a sex offense in civilian society can taint a person's good name, the consequences of such an accusation upon a member of the United States military can have a much more devastating and sweeping impact. Taking the time to talk to a skilled military defense lawyer is crucial for anyone who has been accused of a military sex offense.
The military works very hard to maintain a sense of honor in everything, and members of the armed services throughout the world are expected to uphold that same honor in any scenario. Despite this, many servicemen and women are accused of committing such sex offenses as rape, sexual assault, child pornography, indecent exposure and more. This type of allegation can result in military investigations that may conclude with demotion, discharge or court martial. Additionally, criminal charges can result in a wide variety of penalties such as prison time and registry as a sex offender. While those charged in criminal court must be found guilty to face these penalties, those accused in a military investigation can suffer many punitive and career altering consequences without conviction.
